Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria is a learning experience in distinguishing and interpreting music. I would have to say that until I understood his voice I had a heck of a time with every track. I can't set aside specific examples other than:

In the song Ten Speed (Of God's Blood & Burial) I most commonly mistook several parts in the ending chorus, most notably:

"

There are so many ... I think most of them would be from my youth though. The lyrics are so easy to find nowadays with the internet, but unless they were printed in the sleeve back in the day, you had to work it out for yourself.

I'd say 'kiss this guy' would be the most misheard one, and I must admit, I was guilty of it too.. [I expect I don't need to elaborate on that one, but just in case - Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix] There's actually a site called kiss this guy dot com.. with a whole load of them... some are hilarious.

I always used to think in 'All Along The Watchtower', Hendrix (yeah, I know, I could've just looked up Bob's version) sang 'yeah I was getting laid' instead of 'the hour's getting late'...

Yeah, but I wasn't a 'pop music' kind of kid, so my magazine of choice was Kerrang!

That one song by Melissa Etheridge that was on the radio every 3 songs a couple years ago. Instead of hearing "I'll walk across the fire for you" I had no idea what she was saying. So I just sung "I'll walk into a fire-breathing moose". I was never corrected, probably because everybody thought it was so funny...

I've always heard the intro to Pixies-Mr.Grieves as 'oh baby thing's alright'. it's acutally hope everything is alright hope everything is alright

The lyrics to the Stone roses Made of stone isn't 'I'm up the seine' It's 'I love the scene'. I think i thought it was 'I'm up the seine' because I knew Ian Brown had traveeled around Eurpoe a lot.
